The Troublesome trucks


James: What are you doing here Neville?

Neville: I'm taking these empty trucks to the Smelters and bringing back loaded ones

Tarquin: I wanted a proper engine. Not a big black monster.

Toby: How rude!

Neville: His name is Tarquin but I call him Tarquin the Terrible. (puffs away)

Percy: He really is terrible. I think he needs to be taught manners.

Tarquin: You're quite good at getting girty, Toby. (trucks giggle)

Toby: That van really gets up my funnel.

James: Stupid thing!

Narrator: Tarquin gave James a rude bump and oil splashed everywhere.

Tarquin: Got ya!

James: My beautiful red paint!

Percy: Flaming fireboxes! Gordon: Hello Tarquin. I didn't know you liked fish.

Tarquin: At least The Fat Controller didn't scrap me.
